Evergreen Digital Showroom is pleased to offer this 1962 Cadillac Series 62 convertible for sale.

By the start of the 1960’s, the Cadillac division of General Motors was firmly established as one of America’s top luxury vehicle manufacturers. The over-the-top styling cues of the latter part of the previous decade had passed from the new car showrooms of the day, replaced by designs that were much more refined and exuded a sense of simplistic elegance.

In keeping with their history, Cadillac continued to be at the forefront in terms of style and luxury. The Series 62 in 1962 was offered in a variety of body styles with two and four doors, including a two-door convertible. Among the new amenities was an available fully automatic heating and air conditioning system. Mechanical improvements included offering a three-speed turbo hydramatic transmission for the first time, which would remain one of the standards of the entire GM line for many years. From a safety perspective the first two reservoir brake master cylinder was offered, a full six years before they were mandated by the federal government.

This 1962 Cadillac Series 62 convertible, built the second week of July 1962, is a fine example of unrestored elegance. Finished in Maize (paint code 45) with a white top and light two-tone leather interior which seats five comfortably, the front bucket seats show the slight wear one would expect from this vintage of vehicle. All other interior appointments show similar wear but are very presentable. Power comes from a powerful 390 cubic inch engine mated to the new-style three speed automatic transmission. Additional options include power steering, power brakes, power windows and power seat, all items one would expect to find in an early 60’s Caddy! At the other end of the vehicle, a cavernous trunk provides a wealth of space for storage. This vehicle has been in the portfolio of a major midwestern collector for almost 30 years and stored in a humidity-controlled environment after purchase from the original owner. While not a perfect car cosmetically, it is a very presentable driver and would make a fantastic parade car or tour vehicle. Very recent maintenance has been performed on the brakes and fuel system.

DISCLOSURE

COSMETIC: There may be chips and flaws present on the paint. There may be imperfections on the chrome. Please refer to photos for issues specific to this vehicle.

MECHANICAL: This vehicle has been a part of a static display for a long period of time and is subject to flaw that might result from not being driven. Evergreen Digital Showroom makes every effort to provide accurate information as to the various mechanical and electrical systems of the vehicles we represent. In most cases we do not verify numbers that would indicate size and specifications of engines. We recommend the buyer arrange for an inspection prior to placing a deposit for any classic collectible vehicle.

PHOTOS: Evergreen Digital Showroom makes every effort to accurately portray the vehicles we represent in photos. The only editing we perform is for cropping purposes and we do not perform manipulations such as color correction or other changes. We attempt to show any issues with the cosmetic appearance of a vehicle, but as with the vehicle’s mechanicals recommend an inspection prior to placing a deposit. Any props used in taking the vehicle photos, or other vehicles that might appear in a photo, are not included in the sale unless specified in the description of the vehicle.

The cost of parts and restoration of vehicles in increasing almost daily. These are classics—they are not making any more and they become harder to find with each day that passes. Historically, classic and collectible vehicles have increased in value over time and been an excellent investment, typically appreciating at a higher rate than most other investment instruments as proven by numerous articles, records of private sales and auction tracking PLUS they provide a tangible asset that can be enjoyed every day. As with any investment, a positive return is not guaranteed and can be influenced by many factors.

GENERAL INFORMATION: We highly recommend prospective buyers personally inspect any vehicle they are considering purchasing. This is especially true when dealing with classic, collectible vehicles. While we are experienced in describing and assessing this type of vehicle, we can only look through our eyes and not the eyes of another person. We do not recommend attempting to drive one of these vehicles home! As a practical matter many of these vehicles have not been on anything resembling a long trip for years and should be thoroughly inspected, serviced and recommissioned before attempting a significant road trip. Virtually all of the vehicles we represent have a “clean” title. However, from time to time we do have vehicles that pre-date modern vehicle registration laws or for some reason do not have a title. In those cases the lack of a title will be disclosed in the vehicle description.

For additional information or questions regarding this disclosure, contact our team at 417-532-8000.

FINANCING

Evergreen Digital Showroom will make every effort to work with the financial institution of the prospective buyer’s choice in providing the necessary documents and information to close the transaction in an efficient and timely manner. In the event a buyer would like to finance the purchase of a classic collectible vehicle we recommend contacting JJ BEST BANC, 800-872-1965. Please let them know that you are working with Evergreen Digital Showroom to expedite the process.

DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT

We require a minimum non-refundable deposit of $1000 payable to secure a vehicle, with final payment expected within five business days from the date of such action. Delays beyond five business days will be handled on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of Evergreen Digital Showroom. We encourage an inspection of the vehicle prior to placing a deposit.

NOTICE

Because of the number of vehicles we represent we cannot drive every vehicle for long distances. These vehicles have been part of static displays for long periods of time, in some cases for decades, and are subject to the flaws and imperfections consistent with that. While we do our best to disclose all issues we known about a vehicle in our advertising, these are old cars and something that has always worked in the past might not function properly today. Please check the requirements of your state regarding the licensing and registration of classic vehicles and make sure the vehicle you are looking at meets those if applicable. Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom possess a clean (non-branded) title which will be provided the new buyer when purchase funds clear our financially institution. Virtually all of our vehicles are sold as mileage exempt due to their age. We do not warranty any vehicle, nor any part of the vehicle including air conditioning systems, brake systems, electrical systems and gauges, fuel systems, accessories or powertrain components.

These are old vehicles and it is very common for them to require certain maintenance and upkeep for them to be operational. In many cases issues with leaks may develop when being driven after a long period of not being used. This is common, as classic cars at some point will leak fluids. For this reason, we do not encourage buyers to attempt driving their purchase home as we cannot guarantee functional reliability of these vehicles. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to be sure they are comfortable with these issues before purchasing a classic car.

Descriptions of vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom are intended to be informational in nature and do not in any way constitute any sort of warranty, expressed or implied. Again, these vehicles are presented “as-is, where-is” without guarantee or warranty. Vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 will likely not be included in the databases of companies such as CarFax and AutoCheck that provide vehicle history information to consumers. If you have specific questions regarding a vehicle we urge you to contact us at 417-532-8000.

Digital Showroom. In the event a prospective buyer is unable to complete the transaction in a timely fashion any and all monies paid to Evergreen Digital Showroom will be forfeited by the prospective buyer.

INSPECTIONS

Evergreen Digital Showroom encourages personal inspections by prospective buyers! We make every attempt to disclose known flaws, defects and imperfections but at the end of the day purchasing a vehicle is a very subjective process and it is impossible for us to see through your eyes. In the event a prospective buyer cannot personally inspect a vehicle we will make every effort to work with any reputable third party engaged by the buyer. We strongly encourage an inspection before placing a deposit on a vehicle.

SHIPPING

We work with both domestic and international buyers and can assist prospective buyers with any transportation requirements their particular situation requires. We will gladly work to accommodate the requests of any transportation company of the buyer’s choosing. Evergreen Digital Showroom recommends the use of enclosed transport and use Passport Transport (417-532-5600) exclusively for our vehicle transportation needs. All transportation costs are the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise negotiated.
